I booked the hotel on the basis of the other excellent reviews here. However, we didn't feel it was very good value for money (and we have stayed at many Greek hotels!). Firstly when we arrived our room (superior suite for 2 adults and 2 children) was double booked. This wasn't brought to our attention, we were put in a smaller room until we pointed out the mistake. We were then offered a second room in addition to the family suite, which we took up. No help offered with luggage and given there was no lift it was a bit of a climb with luggage to the rooms on the first and second floor. The rooms are well appointed although personally we found the beds very soft. The breakfast buffet on the first day was tasty and freshly prepared; on the second day there was apparently an 'electrical fault' in the kitchen so we had breakfast served to us; suspect this was because we were the only guests? Good things - Kostas let us try his home brewed wine - delicious! He is also very helpful in telling us how to get around and what to do in the area. But at 200 euros per night felt the resort was overpriced for what you get; eg no pool. There is a free pool you can use further up in Kalo Nero.
